Dangling from the top of a ladder creating photos isn't where you'd expect your next big photo business idea to hit you, but that's exactly what happened to one of today's guests. In fact, his story reminded me of one my favorite reality TV shows, Shark Tank.
On Shark Tank, "budding entrepreneurs get the chance to bring their dreams to fruition. They present their ideas to the sharks in the tank - five titans of industry, who made their own dreams a reality and turned their ideas into lucrative empires. The contestants try to convince any one of the sharks to invest money in their idea.
At the last Photo Plus Expo, I met a couple photographers who could likely fit the show's format. They took an idea or problem they had as photographers and created a solution that became a business.
As we will learn from these two photographers, you don't have to sell pictures to launch your dream photography-related business. Xume Adaptors and Cecelia Galleries show us how a frustration, or just a simple observation, can pay off for you.
